Browsing around from place to place, I happened upon http://www.experimentalstuff.com/. An amusing name for a whole bunch of material available from Sun.
Sitting around this evening I found a couple of good ‘ol fashioned demos that will run on my WinXP laptop. Made me all nostalgic for the Amiga and all those old demos that sometimes sort-of half-worked, because I never quite had the exact same A500 or A1200 as all the demo writers.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
